In a proposed 3.8 trillion dollars President Obama has proposed digging deep and cutting deep and managed to cut $775 Million dollars. As you can see in the picture above, the green section indicates his cuts in the overall pie graph. What? You can’t find it – here take a closer look (click the article to see the rest) Sometimes a chart visual just doesn’t do it. So lets talk about how many pennies can you stack to get from the Earth to the Moon : 384 billion. Our budget is considerably larger than that. So how much budget cutting […]
From here. The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education. As part of the five-year $1.3 Million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School. The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School. Parents at Cross Timbers say they were caught off-guard by the program, and were surprised the district only told them about it in a meeting Monday night between parents and Mansfield ISD Superintendent Bob Morrison. The DOE […]
That’s right – you knew more government regulations always have unintended consequences – and this is the case – all new debt the credit card companies have raised their interest rates to record levels. While the Credit CARD Act did limit how much consumers would be charged for late payment or over the limit spending on their credit cards, the Act did not address the creation of other penalty fees. For example, in late 2009, Fifth Third Bank started charging $19 for cardholders who had not used their credit cards in 12 months (2). Citi started charging a higher interest […]
The FDA continues to control the free market more and more – keep in mind the FDA has recently had a huge power grab with the Food bill that just passed pushed forward by progressives. Tobacco companies led by Altria Group Inc. and Reynolds American Inc. must get U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to sell products introduced or changed in the past four years, a move that may let the agency keep more addictive items off the market. Products that weren’t commercially available on Feb. 15, 2007, must be submitted for review, the FDA said today in a statement. […]
American life is experiencing massive amounts of day to day technology not present a decade ago. Most of these developments are in areas surrounding ‘public safety’. Why? Because war drives production process innovation and research on new products. Several areas that benefit our civilian terrorists surveillance infrastructure evolved out of military necessity in the middle east. As if we were in an unwritten chapter in Orwell’s 1984 – we get ‘The Gorgon Stare’. The reaper drone that host’s this system can fly one path while recording an entire city and present 65 image streams simultaneously to end users who can select a […]
Yeah, that’s right, America’s favorite drill instructor is pissed at the administration, and rightly so. Can I tell you that it makes me proud to see another guy who just like the Duke, stand up in Hollywood (granted he’s more on the fringe of Hollywood)? Watch the video (NBC no less) of Retired Staff Sergent (Honorable Gunnery Sergent) “The Gunny” Lee Ermey blast the administration in this youtube video. I think he may have just surprised the other “stars” on stage. During a December 10, 2010 appearance on Roe & Roeper’s Miracle on Indianapolis Blvd. Holiday Extravaganza broadcast, live from […]
As usual communists are at it again – this time weaseling their way into politics and then denying their connections ever happened. In the 30’s and 40’s the communists managed to assert themselves into American politics and it took the 50’s to root them all out but now we’re seeing this resurgence of progressives and down right full-on-double-rainbow communists. For example: Trevor Loudon has uncovered some unsettling news: The Communist Party USA once considered Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie a “friend of the party.” Using what are reportedly secret, first-hand documents, Loudon shows how CPUSA praised the secretary back […]
From here. At a debate sponsored by the Illinois League of Women Voters between Democratic incumbent Rep. Melissa Bean, GOP challenger Joe Walsh and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer Wednesday, the audience loudly objected when the moderator, Kathy Tate-Bradish, insisted on proceeding without reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. In the end, she didn’t stand a chance against the 300-member audience. The camera captures Republican Joe Walsh’s reaction: Let me tell you, seeing people stand up and say the pledge over liberal communist people like this hyphenated last name woman makes me very proud.
This weekend promises to have a bunch of great seminars that discuss our founding fathers, liberty, and our Constitution. I thought it would be important to remind people what the true meaning of Left vs. Right on the political spectrum is. After a brief conversation with some co-workers who labeled Nazism as Right-Wing nut jobs, I had to correct them and draw up this graph which represents the correct political spectrum where Nazism and Communism exist on the far left end of the total state controlled government. I actually looked around first and didn’t see anything that resembled this scale […]
You should know by now that Illinois is a very corrupt state and that unions have a stranglehold. But you probably never thought that teachers could retire on 26 million dollars. Lets reiterate, retire early after 34 years of work and you’ll retire on $26,000,000. Yeah how’s that work? Read the rest of the story at the Daily Bail.
After the President’s failed attempt to inspire confidence in us in his speech last night, where he spent more time trying to push cap and tax legislature than he did actually describing how they planned to fix the problem, I figured it would be a good idea to discuss some of the facts. 1. BP itself hasn’t existed as British Petroleum in some years. They merged with Amoco in 1998 . 2. The Deepwater Horizon oil rig is owned and operated by Transocean on behalf of BP – who is the majority owner of the oilfield they are drilling. 3. […]
